Tellico Community Playhouse
The Mission of the Tellico Community Players is to provide an outlet for creative community involvement in the theatre arts
and to offer quality performances that enrich, entertain, and educate our audiences
For the love of theatre.....
No stage, no sets, no props or costumes, no money....with nothing but a love of
live theatre and a lot of hard work, the Tellico Community Players put on their first
production, Dirty Work Afoot, in September, 1990 at the Tellico Village Yacht Club.
Fast forward 24 years.....with a long-term affordable lease for the former site of
the Tellico Village Library at Lakeside Plaza and generous donations from the
community, $100,000.00 was raised to create the 136-seat Tellico Community
Playhouse, which opened October, 2014 with Red Velvet Cake Wars.
Another 4 years passed and the Tellico Community Players presented their 100th production, Dixie Swim Club.
Once a small, informal group of theatre devotees, today the TCP is an all volunteer
non-profit organization providing an outlet for creative community involvement in
the performing arts and stagecraft as they continue their passionate history of
quality performances that enrich, entertain, and educate audiences.
The Tellico Community Players is a proud member of the American Association of Community Theatre.

Tellico Community Players announce Open Orientation for anyone interested in participating in the Readers’ Theater 2022 School Tour. Orientation will be held on Wednesday, August 17, from 10 AM until 11 AM at the Tellico Community Playhouse, 304 Lakeside Plaza.
Since 2011, TCP School Tour performers have taken a readers’ theatre program of exciting children’s literature to the Loudon County Elementary Schools. This year, we are featuring a wonderful program entitled “Smoky Mountain Stories” in tribute to the fun-filled poems and tales of our very own Great Smoky Mountains.
No experience is necessary to join in! All that is needed is a love of reading, children, and a small commitment of your time. If you have ever read aloud to a child, you are an experienced candidate. Everyone is welcome to join.
